My Summer Secret For ​Younger Looking Legs

IMG_9021

Hello Fashionistas, summertime brings our legs out of hiding. LOL! My legs are very light. I have such a fair complexion you can see some blueish tone veins under my skin.  No matter if you show a lot or a little leg in the summer, as we get older, our skin shows our age.  We can have dry skin, age spots, varicose veins, stretch marks, and discoloration, etc. With the no pantyhose bare leg fashion, it is yet another thing we need a form of makeup to correct. Many women use self-tanners, but for the mature woman, this is not always the best because it can enhance dry spots and other imperfections more than it can help.

What works best for me is a product from the drug store that has been around for years. I love the Salley Hansen Airbrush legs! It does just that! Your legs look airbrushed. It makes my 60-year-old legs look years younger and hides all my imperfections. I am very fair, so I use the fairest glow color. It is also available in 6 colors, so there is a color for just about everyone.

When I’m in the shower, I shave my legs and then use a sugar scrub to exfoliate my legs. After I get out of the shower, I moisturize with a body oil followed by some Lubaderm body lotion because I tend to be as dry as a crocodile. After about an hour or so and my skin has absorbed all the moisture, I lay an old towel down on the floor before I use the Salley Hansen spray. I then spray it on my legs and rub it in with my hand’s just like I did with the moisturizer. Then, I hit any spots that need more coverage until I think the cover looks even. Then I let it dry for a while before getting dressed for about 30 minutes. It will last me two or three days if I do not wash my legs in the shower with soap or a washcloth and then gently pat them dry.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs range in price from as low as $8.99 to $14.99. I will link below the places I have found it for the best prices below. Once you see how great your legs look after using it, you will want to cover your whole body in it, LOL

Mature Women Fashion Tips: How To Stay Cool In The Summer

 

IMG_6225

Being overheated in the summer when your over 50 can be miserable. And on top of this, the fashion dilemma of not feeling like showing our upper thighs in shorts or upper arms in a tank top. What can we wear to look good and feel confident as well as stay cool at the same time? I will share some tips that work for me.

 

Tip # 1

The lightweight maxi or midi dress with short sleeves or an even better off the shoulder with some sleeve coverage that hides those saggy chicken arms as we age. A dress like this will keep you just as cool as shorts and a tank top while feeling more confident about how you look. This is not to say I don’t wear shorts and a tank top because I do, just not in public. I only wear this outfit at home. When I leave the house, I think there are parts of me best covered up for public consumption! LOL, The other great thing about the summer dress is its a one and done outfit that looks great while feeling like you a rein your nightgown. All you need are some cute sandals.

Tip # 2

When I do wear shorts in public, I wear a Bermuda length short. I think this short length is more flattering on a mature woman. Or, a longer short that is only about two inches above the knee. Then wear any lightweight breathable shirt with the sleeves rolled up. An off the shoulder or cold shoulder top is usually my first choice. For myself, keeping my hair short and off my neck as well as keeping my upper body/shoulders cool is most effective. Most women with any type of hot flash due to menopause will tell you she wants to stick her head in the freezer, LOL. This is also how I feel with MS most of the time in the summer. When I get overheated, it’s my shoulders neck and head that need to stay cool. When this part of me is cool, the rest of my body seems to do better when it’s hot.

Tip # 3

Some more mature women, don’t even want to show their lower legs because of varicose veins, etc. If this is your concern, I recommend a lightweight cotton Capri pant or ankle pant. The key is having color and fabric weight. These two things will help keep you cooler. Keep in mind darker colors absorb the heat. Tip # 1 works well for hiding anything at the lower leg while still staying cool.

 

I hope these three simple tips help. I know these are all important for me as an older woman who only feels confident showing body parts from the shoulders up, the elbows down, and from the knees down. LOL, these are the parts of my own more mature body that are still in reasonably good condition. If you are an older woman who is still very fit and in great shape, I commend you. Then you wear whatever you feel confident in and love. This blog is to help those of us who have challenges in this area. I will link some summer dresses below that I would wear when the heat gets to those crazy high temperatures and the wedge sandals I’m wearing.

Have a blessed day,

Sandy

This suede jacket looks even better in person than it did online! I know you will see this jacket a lot this coming fall and winter. The cropped silhouette is perfect for shorter women 5′ 4″ and under because it puts the waist definition high and makes legs look longer. I highly recommend it.IMG_5622-1.jpg

The Good American jeans are a dark wash high waisted skinny style. This brand is my favorite high-end jean brand because they fit a women’s curvy body perfectly. And, they are more comfortable than any other designer jeans I own! This brand is a great deal right now, so take advantage of the sale prices before they sell out. Just keep in mind they run large so size down one size smaller when you order. Also, if you are a shorter woman their crop jeans will stop right above your ankle.

The shirt I’m wearing is a Nilli Lotan white and a tan stripe shirt. This is an investment piece. This high-quality shirt will never go out of style, and it will last forever! Or you could wear something similar from the Banana Republic or Old Navy and create the same look.

My Treasure and Bond wedge sandals have been an enormous favorite now for the 2nd year. This comfy shoe is available in many different colors. I highly recommend the one I’m wearing as well as the brown and the white. I know you will love these. If the Vince Camuto laser-cut sandal I ordered had shown up I most definitely would have chosen to wear them with this look. I think these are going to be the show of the season! They are also available in grey and black. I just loved the tan ones! You will be seeing them in lots of my outfit posts to come. I am absolutely in love with them.

As for my accessories, I have loved these Kendra Scott earrings, and they look amazing with anything. I Just adore all Kendra Scott Jewelry. The earrings I have on in this photo are not on sale, so I have linked the ones I ordered that I haven’t been delivered yet. I highly recommend anything she has in her line of jewelry. I also still love the Kate Spade watch I’m wearing that I got before it went on sale, so I hope some of you can take advantage of the savings I missed out on.  Today the sale is open to everyone, so enjoy shopping and the vast savings available right now. If you love something, do not hesitate as things sell out fast.
